Pfizer Vaccine Could Arrive in Nebraska as Early as Dec. 14

Published: Dec. 11, 2020

FedEx is expected to begin delivering more than 15 thousand doses of the Pfizer vaccine to Nebraska as early as Monday, Dec. 14.

But there are still a lot of unknowns.

“The information changes every day. So this is not something easily planned for down to the finite details. So we have teams in place at our various hospitals prepared for pretty much any scenario that comes our way,” says Bill Vobejda, Methodist Health System's vice president of Integrated Services.

Methodist said it could receive its first vials by Monday.

“After we unpack the materials, the supplies, the vaccines themselves, prepare it and be ready to go … we believe we would start with our first group, those people who fit into that priority group, on Tuesday,” Vobejda said.
